Summary
Frank Deford is one of the most beloved sports journalists in America. A contributing writer to Sports Illustrated for more than fifty years, and a longtime correspondent on Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, these days, Deford is perhaps best known for his weekly commentaries on NPR{u2019}s {u0093}Morning Edition. Since 1980, Deford has recorded 1,600 of them, and in I{u2019}d Know That Voice Anywhere he brings together the very best, creating a charming, insightful, and wide-ranging look at athletes and the world of sports. In I{u2019}d Know That Voice Anywhere, Deford discusses everything from sex scandals and steroids to why, in a culture dominated by celebrity, sport is the only field on earth where popularity and excellence thrive in tandem. This page-turning compendium covers more than thirty years of sports history while showcasing the vast range of Deford{u2019}s interests and opinions, including his thoughts on the NCAA, why gay athletes {u0093}play straight, and why he{u2019}s worried about living in an economy that is so dominated by golfers. A rollicking sampler of one of NPR{u2019}s most popular segments, I{u2019}d Know That Voice Anywhere is perfect for sports enthusiasts{u0097}as well as sports skeptics{u0097}and a must-read for any Frank Deford fan
